Can an Employer offer you your same position you are currently in and lower your wages by almost 2.00 per hour to give you medical benefits? This seems rather hokie to me. My daughter was told that they would offer her the same position she is doing but it falls under a different catagory where she works. Then they can offer her medical and dental benefits by lowering her pay by 2.00 per hour. Is this legal? What recourse do we have. She has not signed anything, but she is young and does not know her rights.
